Thunderboy: PC LOAD LETTER: I heard Obama is forcing the Marines to check the religion of everyone they kill, and administer last rights in the victim's religion.

If I posted that on facebook, I can think of 5 friends who would repost it as true.

Make it a graphic with a US flag, Jeebus, an eagle or two, and the tagline "Share if you love America!" and you've got a winner.

I can't answer your question but I was inspired to do a gis for "19th century military hats."  And I bring you: a Christian taco with frilly sour cream topping or something to that effect.

Ya well I've only been on active duty in the MC for nearly 12 years and I've heard people call it a hat multiple times, myself included. Yes, it's typically done sarcastically. But no, hell no, will you catch me calling a baseball cap or such a "cover" outside of work.

This is such a silly topic of argument.

Care to argue any further absolutes?


The dudes who call it a "cover" off-duty, and to civilians, are usually the same annoying assholes who think referring to their wife as "Household Six" is hilarious.

I think that's sweet. It probably made them better fighters too, when they could have their little companions right there with them in battle. Good for morale.

This was the fastest spreading bit of derpy poutrage I've seen on Facebook in a long while among my red-state friends.

Even when actual Marines chimed in to say that this wasn't true and that it's so tiring and sad to see these folks fall for the same lies from righty media manipulatiors for the 5000th time.

The reflexive response of course was "Your (sic) the one whose (sic) brain-washed!!" along with various cries of Benghazi-gate, fast and furious, end-times, jebus is coming, gotcha LSM drive-by media lies, etc etc.

Shake my head.

Obama wants Marines to wear 'girly' hats

Madame President Obama's nefarious multistep plan to "gay up" our men and women in uniform has reached its dreaded sartorial stage. First, Homo-bama repealed Don't Ask, Don't Tell and encouraged military gays to ask, tell, dance, work out, shop, brunch, take scenic drives in the country, maintain relationships with their mothers, and do whatever else it is Those People do. It is not enough to seem gay-not under our president's tasteful stainless steel fist-our troops must also dress gay.

Exhibit A: "Thanks to a plan by President Obama to create a 'unisex' look for the Corps, officials are on the verge of swapping out the Marines' iconic caps with a new hat that some have derided as so 'girly' that they would make the French blush," reports, naturally, The New York Post. You know the last time the French blushed? When we saved their asses-wearing god-fearing, woman-loving Christian hats-during WWII.

In the estimation of the Post, the new hats threaten to "take the hard-nosed Leathernecks from the Halls of Montezuma to the shops of Christopher Street"-real queer shops like Village Cigars (Christopher and 7th Avenue), St. Veronica's Catholic Church (153 Christopher), and Citibank (75 Christopher).
Marine officers vote on Friday whether they want to adopt the new hats and look like the cast of RENT eating a damn banana smoothie at a David Barton gym or whether they to keep the old hats and with them, their masculinity. [Spits chewing tobacco on ground.]
